So that's why
A candid look into politics, back when the fruits of the office were ripe for the picking and "conflict of interest" wasn't a thing. No wonder Tammany Hall was as powerful as it was, for as long as it was!
Well read. It was written, however, in such a way that you don't really want to listen in one sitting; you need time between lessons. At least, I did.
